A Certificate Signing Request (CSR) is needed when you want to acquire an SSL certificate which will encrypt all of the payment and account info that will be exchanged between your website and its customers. The CSR contains information about the site and its owner in Base64-encoded form - web address, physical address plus e-mail, company name and unit, and the like. Based upon this code, a licensed SSL vendor gives you the certificate, that's digitally signed with the vendor's private key in order to recognize that they are a trusted issuer. During the CSR generation, a unique private key is also created and the set up of the SSL involves all of the 4 codes - the two keys, the certificate and the CSR. Next, you will be able to use a URL that starts with https:// for your website rather than http:// and your website visitors can view the information that you've provided for the CSR using their Internet browsers.
